I don’t care what consequence it brings
I have been a fool for lesser things

I intend to hold you for the longest time

Keeping The Faith

Favorite Line(s):
You can get just so much
From a good thing
You can linger too long
In your dreams
Say goodbye to the
Oldies but goodies
‘Cause the good ole days weren’t
Always good
And tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems

Today, I’m adding five song lyrics from four songs I fell in love with and one I rediscovered back during my days in Saudi Arabia.  My family wasn’t with me for almost seven months so I ended up buying and listening to a lot of CD’s.  Here’s a couple from Savage Garden, one from country artist John Michael Montgomery, one from Ronan Keating (formerly of the boy-band Boyzone), and a signature song from Billy Joel.  All of these also have tremendous videos!  If you’ve not seen them recently, you really should check them out, too.
Truly, Madly, Deeply
I Knew I Loved You
I Can Love You Like That
When You Say Nothing At All
Piano Man
As usual, enjoy the poetry in the words, then go and find the songs on your favorite song site, buy it if you like it as much as I have – or better yet, go see the artist live the next time they are in your area…
And now, off to watch “Hamlet” with the wife.  I’ve never seen it, so I can hardly wait…  Who knows, maybe a movie review tomorrow…

Today I’ve added a bunch of lyrics and two poems.  One of the poems, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” was actually a poem before it was converted to a song.  The other poem (“Fire And Ice“) is another one I learned while a child.  I memorized it because it was meaningful – but mostly because it was short.
Next, I’ve added two more patriotic lyrics: “America, The Beautiful” and “The Star-Spangled Banner“.  My favorite line from America is “crown thy good, in brotherhood, thy liberty, in law”.
The next two are martial (as well as nationalistic), but they represent a very strong side of my personality: “The Ballad of the Green Berets” and “The Marine’s Hymn“.  I always thought I’d grow up to be a Marine, but then I found out they were actually part of the Navy and were mostly based on ships.  Since I didn’t know how to swim and was terrified of the water for most of my life – that was out!  My poor vision kept me out of consideration for a lot of occupations in my life.  I definitely would have considered being Airborne, Ranger and Special Forces.  I guess God had other plans…
The final two additions today are both about thinking back.  The first is by Billy Joel, who – for a brief period – was one of my favorite pop stars: “Keeping the Faith“.  The second, is another by Jim Croce: “Operator“.  Sometimes you want sooo bad to make that call — then, never mind!
